    • The Polo Social - Your first time? What is it? What to Expect? How to Book!
      The Polo Social, what is it?

      The Polo Social is a social event held on 28 June ~ 01 July 2019 that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club.
      So, if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.

      What to Expect?
      A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!
      What’s going on?
      Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ to return on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday daytime. 
      Where is it?
      The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ Tel: 01524 781 453 We have held the event here for a number of years before our recent departure to Kelham Hall, and it’s an excellent venue which really suits the club’s event. There is food available on site and there are also a couple of pubs and a Fish & Chips shop in walking distance. There is also the Mini-Golf, Karting and a leisure centre with a pool.
      What do you need?
      If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold-water supply so, bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money but there is a cash machine by the entrance to the site.
      How much does it cost and how to book?
      If you are camping the rate is £21/night. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars they may charge you extra. If you are a paid up member there is a discounted rate see this https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/357805-polo-social-2019/ To book head to http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ and click book now. Then please select Shelduck 2 as this is our field. If you are camping for just the Saturday night then its £21 per pitch. You can book this online as per above but you might not be able to select Shelduck 2. Please select another field but just pitch up in the Shelduck 2 field with the rest of us when you arrive as there will be loads of room. The day rate is £10 per car.

      Oh yes I too have had to come to terms with electronic ignition finally, but there's a reason. Back in the day when I was a motorcycle courier in London all the electronic ignitions on bikes (and there weren't many back then) were completely shite. They didn't last and cost a fortune to replace. You even had to drop the engine out of a Honda CX500 to do it. Nightmare. So I either used bikes with points ignition or converted my more modern bikes to run points ignition which was easy as most electronic units back then were simply bolt-on affairs that fit where the points on that model used to go.   Fast forward a hundred years to now and I'm perfectly happy with the electronic ignition on my bike because it's simple, bulletproof and a spare CDI box only costs me seven quid from China and can be replaced at the side of the road in less than two minutes (never had to though) and everything just works great. If they had been like that in the first place it would have been fine but in the beginning electronic ignition was just terrible so I steadfastly opposed it on my work bikes which had to do hundreds of miles every week in all weathers all the time. Points never let me down, but back then but we didn't have cheap and cheerful Chinese parts like we do now.   As for the rest of it, my Polo only has a 999cc engine so anything that robs it of power is no good to me. I know from working on stuff all my life that you CAN get pretty reasonable mileage out of a bigger engine if you try, but an underpowered little engine that's working too hard will still get terrible mileage even if it's a wee little engine. If it's got to struggle along it's just not working efficiently.   There's been a lot of waffle over the years since fuel injection became the norm but I can tell you a well tuned carb engine can be as clean running as fuel injection if you stay on top of it and do a bit of tuning and maintenance, but most people don't do their own maintenance these days so a computer assisted fuel injection system that can mostly fend for itself is probably for the best in most cases.   It's the primitive nature of this 2000 Polo that drew me to buy it in the first place. Modern cars bore me but there's little actually "modern" about a 2000 Polo and spares are cheaper than bits for my bikes! I hate pretty much all modern cars because I grew up driving cars that had character. In my day a secondhand car could have been anything from the 1940's to the 1970's and cars were wonderful back then. But you'd pay dearly for anything of that vintage now and I can't be bothered to work on them all the time so this Polo fits the bill nicely.

      You might be lucky and get the switched ground to energise a relay, but as it's already high resistance, it's only a matter of time before it completely fails, much better to replace the clockspring https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Polo-6n2-00-02-Steering-wheel-Squib-clock-spring-slip-ring-1H0959653E/223262530130?hash=item33fb7bda52:g:y1kAAOSwH-daKSsd   or  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Airbag-Clock-Spring-Squib-Spiral-Cable-For-Volkswagen-Seat-most-models-to-2004-/162961404595

      Hello. So..that worked and as per tour diagnoses. I have high resistance on the ground wire...as youve said im guessig this is clockspring....now the poorman question...i dont wanna fork out for a new clockspring as my airbag light isnt on..and baeicly only effecting the horn..... CAN i put a relay on the end where to horn would normally be? As its reading 12v im hoping it wont need high current to activate and could get away with doing it that way?  Sorry my bad explanation So igniion live to relay. New wire from battery to relay. New wire from relay to horn. Ground the horn and run the switched ground to the relay as the switch (technically bqckwards?) Would thst work or would the resistwnce still be too much?

      Cheers nige. This is what I was thinking.  You only find out about these things when you do them for yourself I suppose.  The middle silencer (also new) I can't check easily as the seam is on the top against the bottom of the car - it could be the same for all I know.
